Farewell

Nottingham City Harriers was the name adopted by a group of runners at the end of 2003 who, upon resignation from a local athletics club, set up their own independent training sessions.

The numbers have dwindled over the years and traveling to training venues at rush hour has got ever more difficult with worsening traffic conditions. So it has been decided to end the informal group from 17th January 2018, the remaining individuals continuing in a private capacity.

Many thanks to the runners who have supported these sessions over the years but we hope to still see some of you from time to time in the future.

Training and Racing 24th - 30th August 2004
Tuesday 24th August - 6:30pm - Bramcote Leisure Centre
10M mainly off-road, start steady, finish quick.

Wednesday 25th August - 6pm - Tennis Centre
The Ken Allen-endorsed midweek longish run. Either meet at the TC @ 6pm for an out-and-back to Holme Pierrepont, ~11M, or meet at my place @ 5:50pm to make it 13-14M.

Thursday 26th August - 6:30pm - Wollaton Park Intervals
Trevor's session - meet @ Wollaton Pk. Lake @ 6:30pm for 7pm session - likely 6 x 800m off 60-90 sec recovery.

Saturday 28th August - 10am - St. Leonards, Wollaton Park
Easy 1 hour session round the Park & Uni.

Sunday 29th August - 8:30am - Attenborough Nature Reserve.
The long one, will be the Two Bridges run which is about 22m, with limited routes to cut short! - start steady, finish at 'Coach Henderson-endorsed' marathon pace!


A couple of upcoming races which may be of interest:
Robin Hood 1/2M - 12 September
Merrill College and Shelton Striders 10k - 3rd October

I did the 10k in 2002 and it is the fastest 10k course I've ever seen, absolutely pancake flat, very few turns. Definitely a PB course if there's no wind.
